The week of Nov. 11-17, Huntington Learning Center in Wellington will recognize American Education Week, a celebration of public education and the people who make a difference in ensuring every child receives a quality education. First observed in 1921, the National Education Association’s American Education Week is now in its 91st year.
Huntington will join the National Education Association’s daily observances throughout the week: Monday, Nov. 12 is Veterans Day; Tuesday, Nov. 13 is Parents Day; Wednesday, Nov. 14 is Education Support Professionals Day; Thursday, Nov. 15 is Educator for a Day; and Friday, Nov. 16 is Substitute Educators Day.
“For 155 years, the National Education Association has worked to advocate for quality education for all students — a mission that Huntington Learning Center stands behind,” said Mary Fisher of the Wellington Huntington Learning Center. “American Education Week is an important commemoration of the people and communities who believe in the importance of great education and work hard every day to give children the tools to succeed.”
American Education Week was born when the National Education Association and the American Legion came together in 1919 to generate public support for education.
In honor of American Education Week, the Wellington Huntington Learning Center has planned activities to spotlight this awareness event in the community and at the center.
